Strangeness and Exotica at RHIC
Location: Large Seminar Room - Physics, Bldg. 510
Date: May 14, 2004
Description: The goal of this workshop is to discuss both theoretical and
experimental results on strange and exotic particle production at RHIC.
Traditionally in heavy ion physics the measurement of strangeness has
been of interest due to the expected strangeness enhancement in QGP. At
RHIC, the rich set of phenomena observed in the medium and high-pt
region have brought a new perspective into the strange particle sector.
Strange particles can be identified to relatively high-pt. This allows
the study of hadron production mechanisms over a broad momentum range.
Of particular interest is the baryon versus meson production as it may
give insight into the hadronization process and the properties of the
underlying medium. The high density matter produced at RHIC may also
provide a unique environment for the production of Pentaquarks and
other exotic particles. The current status of experimental searches and
theoretical work in this area will be discussed.
